    Dragon Black (Mitsuki Koga, Rina Takeda, Asami) (2015)

    This is a straight to DVD film with obviously almost no production values to speak of, however, the cast should be of some interest: Mitsuki Koga (Bushido Man), Rina Takeda and Asami. The director is Jirô Ishikawa

    The Japanese DVD came out last week. It's also going to have a (very) limited theatrical run from Dec. 19.

    Trailer:

    New film coming from the world's greatest animation director. Opens August 2016. Will probably see this on the opening day. I hope I won't cry like last time.

    "...Iwai set out a multi-seasonal shooting schedule to fulfill an ambition to shoot a film that captures the beauty of Japan’s four seasons. Lensing will wrap in August, with theatrical distribution in Japan set between February and April next year.

    The story involves a couple, their online personas, jealousy, divorce and cynical manipulations...."


    Very much looking forward to this. Swallowtail Butterfly and All About Lily Chou Chou are both among the 10 best movies ever made for me, and April Story is right behind them. Iwai's latest live action, Vampire, was very uneven but still fascinating. Interesting to see how the new film will turn out.
    The title is The Bride of Rip Van Winkle. Opens 2016/03/26 in Japan.

    The website is also active, with a teaser that shows nothing.

    The poster is a thing of beauty

    Two new films coming from Nobuhiro Yamashita in 2016:

    [Ryuhei] Matsuda also plays the protagonist of Nobuhiro Yamashita's “My Uncle,” a philosophical freeloader scheming to save up for a trip to Hawaii to reunite with the girl of his dreams.

    Director Yamashita continues to be quietly prolific, keeping one foot in the commercial arena and the other in the independent scene. His other feature scheduled for release, “Over Fence,” starring Joe Odagiri, Yu Aoi and Shota Matsuda, is an adaptation of a novel by author Yasushi Sato, whose “Sketches of Kaitan City” and “The Light Shines Only There” provided dark and heavily dramatic material for two excellent films.

    Yamashita directing Yu Aoi! That's my dream come true!

    oh, and there's still no DVD/BD release of Chonoryoku kenkyubu no 3 nin. It's available on some streaming service(s?) though.

    The link I posted above is also worth a closer look: ONE TAKE ON JAPANESE CINEMA: What's on the slate for 2016?

    Dream Theater
    Low budget Asami trash with some good looking action and bloodshed. Runs 28 min.

    And gotta love this broken English intro to Noboru Iguchi's new film Devotion to Cinema:
    "Record breaking number of kisses between girls brought a sensation to viewers. What the girls witnessed after kisses another masterpiece from Noboru Iguchi, reflecting this director’s aestheticism and lyricism."
    - http://yubarifanta.com/films/3197/?lang=en

    I'm sure there are many other interesting films waiting to be discovered. I'm a little sad that Nishimura won't be there, though (probably busy shooting Meatball Machine).

    Looking forward to seeing the Sato film, Takuma. Sato is consistent.

    Trailer for Noboru Iguchi's new film Devotion to Cinema (Kinema junjo). Not what you'd expect.



    In Yubari next month. Not too excited about the film, but Iguchi's gonna be there and the man's always worth seeing live.
